OXFORD, Miss. (WTVA) -- The Mississippi Department of Transportation says an Oxford intersection will be closed for construction work starting Monday.
The intersection of Highway 6 and Old Taylor Road will close, but a detour route will be provided.
MDOT says drivers needing to get in the area can use the Coliseum Drive exit to access Old Taylor Road.
In February, officials announced plans to construct a roundabout at the intersection of Old Taylor Road and Highway 6, widen the bridge over the highway to accommodate four-lanes of traffic and add a protected eight-foot sidewalk for pedestrians.
MDOT did not indicate when the intersection would be reopened.
